4) Why is there no HCO3- reabsorption by the distal tubule?
a) There are no HCO3-/Cl- exchangers in the distal tubule.
b) There is no carbonic anhydrase in the distal tubule cells .
c) The distal tubule is impermeable to CO2.
d) There is very little filtered HCO3- in the distal tubule.
e) The distal tubule is impermeable to HCO3-.
5) What is the role of the vasa recta?
6) What is a countercurrent exchanger? What is a countercurrent multiplier?
7) Why is the colloid osmotic pressure in the vasa recta critical to kidney function?
8) Why is the colloid osmotic pressure of the vasa recta greater than that in the tubular fluid or the
peritubular fluid?
9) What is ADH? What is its role? What regulates its release?
